I have never been and I have one burning question that has been bugging me. I have seen many pics of portable toilets. Are there any real toilets around? There is just something wrong about a porta potty in 100 degree weather!!!

Yeah, there's a couple trailers of flushable toilets, with faucets and everything. Lines are disgustingly long, though. If one must take a dump, I recommend holding it all day and night until using one of these first thing each morning.

Empire Polo Field = Huge portapotty for Horses
don't believe me? just do a sample soil taste....it already smells like horse shit out there...you won't notice a difference in the portapit. Actually new advances have been made in the portapit industry that can tame the gnarliest of smells. Personally i'd watch out for the semen on the TP instead of worrying about the smell.

So true. Don't worry about the bathrooms too much. Usually you're so dehydrated that you only need to use it once or twice during the day.

Im sure its nothing compared to the port-a-potties they had for Stilldream. A campout up by Angel's Camp. Only a weekend thing and the toilets began literally overflowing. Bloody tampons coming out, diarrhea, everything. I am not joking. It still haunts me.

I never had to wait more than 2 - 3 minutes last year for the flushies. YMMV.

Its so hot out there that whatever you expel pretty much dries up en route to the ground.

The overabundance of port-o-potties has convinced me to carry these items with me at all times:


a roll of toilet paper
toilet seat covers
sanitary hand wipes
portable light source (i.e. glowstick, etc., for night time porto use)

In 03 (first year of onsite camping) there was a toilet trailer between the main stage and outdoor theatre that actually had air conditioning. I was VERY early into the show both days and chilled in there for a bit and did my business before it got crowded.

The main porta-potties by days end will seem to be perched atop a glorious river of chocolate ala Wonkas factory or the land of Dairy Queen.

You will be hungry and tempted to sample from this mighty chocolate river, but be warned that very little of it is chocolate and that which is has already made the rounds through the digestive systems of other individuals. Best to just keep a Twix with you instead, if you have a sweet tooth or are a fat German child.

It makes your poo turn a weird color of dark brownish/green. But it has always helped me.

I've been in training to go #2 early in the AM. Anything to avoid crapping in the portaloos later in the day.

I'm glad they clean the potties, but the poo-scented dust it stirs up is awful. I remember last year approaching the toilets right around dusk when the sun reveals all the dust and whatnot floating in the air. It was like a giant cloud of fecal dust. I got the hell out of there.

iv been crapping in porta-jons in phoenix in the summer for years and all i have to say is if you have to go bad enough you will use them regardless of how gross they look or smell and if you are dumb enough to sit before checking the status on the tp a shirt sleve or a sock will sufice

There are always some toilets with running water in between the Sahara tent and the Gobi. and they are wonderful !!!!!! Other wise go to your local Target and buy toilet seat covers 5 for 1 dollar and they will make your shittin and pissin experience a wee bit better.

One needs to use caution when making a deposit in a freshly cleaned Porto Pot. Blue water splash back is no laughing matter.

LOL! That's why the TP is always gone so quickly. People (myself included) putting down a thick layer to avoid potential splash-back, blue water or otherwise.

The toilets aren't bad. We usually hopped in the car and went to the grocery store in the morning for more water and a quick number 1 and 2. The portopotty in the parking lot was the most terrible thing I've ever seen though. I thought about wetting my pants instead of using it. I held it instead. Also bring TP. I have a friend who didn't and regretted it.

its funny up until a certain point, then the lines start to get blurred and before you know it, you cant tell who's joking and who's serious... and i'm sure even the person doing the shit talking begins to question whether they are joking or not...

Heres how you deal with the port-o-shitters:

1. Do not sit directly on the seat. Use tp or one of those seat covers if you must sit.

2. Go to the very back of the row. The furthest shitters rarely get used if at all. I was pleasantly surprised to find that, even on Sunday, the toilets furthest back seemed like they were "untainted"

A word of advice on the toilet situation at Coachella.

By each brick of port-o-potties, there forms two long lines of people waiting to go to the bathroom. Do not get in either line. Go up front by the hand sanitizer stations and just walk in to the tent and go towards the back. Nice clean toilets and you don't feel like cattle baking in the sun waiting to pee. Whenever I see people waiting in line for the bathrooms, I feel bad. It is just totally unne....

Wait, shit, I'm giving away the secret!

The porto's at burning man were the best. Second I get there I decide to take a leak.. I see this 50 year old man walk into one to take care of his business and he comes back out screaming.. I walked in and the whole thing was covered in feces and blood..I screamed as well.

It was always nice seeing naked ppl come out of the porto's as well.. Just made u feel that much cleaner.

Last year after the second song of peaches i realized i had been hit with terrible diarrhea and went to the trailer bathroom the line was 10 people long. i just went to the front of the line and asked if any one had a problem of me cutting because I was not sure how much longer I could hold it. They let me. I felt bad for whoever used it next.

secondly, 3 times the whole weekend?!? kill your kidneys & liver much? i go 3 times every morning before 9am since we are already drinking heinekans and stuffing down a dreaded breakfast burrito at 7am.

wanted to re-iterate what has already been said, which is that #2 should be your only problem bathroom usage-wise. it's hot enough that you will only have to go #1, at most, once during the day, if that. your body absorbs all the water you drink and uses every last drop, leaving nothing for your kidneys to filter out.

i know what you're talking about, and you're totally right. aside from there being no toilet paper by the end of the day, it's fairly clean back there and there's no line. i just don't understand why people don't get that where there's no line, there are open bathrooms? it all clusters at the front. lazy?

I brought those and they were seriously such a life saver. During the day, the toilets weren't that bad but at night sometimes you would open them and there would be piss, crap, or vomit all over the seat. When you've been waiting in line to use an outhouse and find it filthy, you don't want to get back out of line just to try your luck with another that could be just as nasty. And I'm pregnant so I pee a lot!!

So ladies- I would also recommend the p-mate for festivals!

The toilet holes were small. I was forces to bend in a weird direction in order to perform 2 things at the same time (if you know what I mean). I guess it's better to have a small hole than to have someone fall into a big one.
